If you are gonna get the i5 and not the i3, then everything looks good except for the power supply. I strongly caution against buying a $23 psu. That particular one has no safety features. If that goes down it could end up taking your whole system with it. I'd recommend spending at least $15 more for the psu and save yourself a potential headache down the road.
